Groupon’s Guide To Milan

A magnet for designers, artists, photographers, and models, Milan is one of the world’s fashion centres, boasting an elegant backdrop rooted in Roman times.

From its imposing historic centre and fashion districts to the countryside outskirts, Milan is a rare and appealing mixture of ancient values and contemporary lifestyle. The Navigli area features an abundance of restaurants, ranging from pizzerias to fine seafood haunts, while Piazza del Duomo, boasting the Milan Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in the world guarding the city’s cobblestoned streets since 1385, opens to shops, theatres, museums, and galleries in the city centre. Big fashion names can be found in the Corso Buenos Aires or Corso Vercelli, and cultural sights are plentiful, including attractions such as the Sforza Castle. Art lovers will rejoice at the chance to take in Italian art from the 14th century to modern times at Pinacoteca di Brera. Milan has a humid subtropical climate with hot days of summer and humid rather cold days of winter. During summer, the temperatures are expected to be around 21°C and sometimes a sudden rain accompanied by thunderstorms will thrill the cityscape. Spring and autumn come with moderate weather conditions when the nights will be colder than the days, and rainy moments will be frequent. Winter knocks at the door with temperatures around 7°C, but the sun won’t shine like in the previous months.

Groupon’s Guide To Lake Garda

The romantic town of Riva del Garda is set between the green-clad slopes of the Italian Alps and the blue shimmering waters of Lake Garda. Forming a secluded Mediterranean oasis with olive trees and palms at every step, the lake’s rolling shores are a paradise for travellers fond of nature.

Tourists can try their hand at an array of water sports, such as sailing and windsurfing at the town’s two harbours, while rock climbing provides further land adventures. Strolling down pedestrianised streets, holidaymakers can see moated castles and a medieval tower, and enjoy a traditional Italian lunch at one of the many local restaurants in the historic town of Riva del Garda. The town’s civic museums is home to galleries and an archaeological collection, while historic sites can be found in Rocca, a former fort just off the shore. The region features a humid subtropical climate characterised by warm summers and rather cold winters. Summer comes with average temperatures of 28°C, lots of sunshine in July and frequent rainfalls in August. In autumn, a clear sky and moderate levels of sunshine invite travellers to visit the city during the season.
